    Bad Orgfiller. Don't give any rankings please.

    I think we'll see a lot more trades when the draft is live.

    Non-drafters will get excited when they see an undervalued player slipping through the cracks, and drafters will despair when they get sniped a few picks before.
    Would probably be good to set a max trade window once someone's turn starts. I'd say two hours. I get that things are gonna be in-flux depending on who gets picked in the last round, but some guys will ride out the full 12 hours, hoping to extract that extra 5th round pick.

    Why not just wait for the 4th pick to come up and go from there?

    I.e I gave Goldbull a list of 4 players that are available and if he would rather select them then the remaining pool, let me know and I'll check and we can make a deal

    The only player whose rank I properly put any thought into in the above order is Trout lol.

    We have a 1-hour trade window.

    I think we should lengthen it for this draft.

    I'd support this. The draft would take a little longer, but it would reduce the possibility of missed trades because of someone not being online.

    Also, I feel like the 1hr trade window should freeze overnight.

    I realize that this rule feedback is late as the commissioners asked for comments a while ago, so no worries if we keep it as-is.

    It would be funny if you re-acquired Trout.

    Syndergaard
    Cutch
    Devers.

    Do it.

    Maybe you're right. I didn't put very much thought into but after second inspection I think SD is probably in the best position to trade for him. He has a lot of depth and high end pieces.

    Is there a list of all the players dropped from the four dispersal teams? I want to keep track of the draft and make some possible trades but I can't really be on my PC this weekend.
